A "Must" for the CHESS Fanatic
3 February 2005 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

Here you've got five music videos from the concept album of that fantastic musical CHESS. "One Night In Bangkok"...Murray Head/"Nobody's Side"...Elaine Paige/"The Arbiter"...Bjorn Skifs/"I Know Him So Well"...Elaine Paige and Barbara Dickson/"Pity The Child"...Murray Head are the featured songs. Elaine, Murray, Barbara and Bjorn of course all sang these roles in the full concept album, while only Elaine and Murray recreated their roles in the London stage production. Missing in action here is Tommy Korborg as "The Russian"(eventually named Anatoly). These videos definitely create a great vision of what the show would become, and stand alone as individual music videos. Tim Rice(the lyricist) serves as the narrator who introduces each segment. Unless you're able to get a DVD of the Swedish cast, or were able to see a televised production in New Zealand, this is the closest you'll get to experience CHESS on video...it's LONG out-of-print on VHS, but you should be able to find a copy on eBay. This is a great sampler for one of the most exciting musicals ever created, and is a must for lovers of Musical Theater!
